Save money, reduce food waste, take fewer trips to the grocery store and eat healthier with this vacuum sealer set that will help your food last five times longer.
In 2022 the National Zero Waste Council conducted research on household food waste in Canada, and the results were astonishing.
- 63% of the food Canadians throw away could have been easten
- For the average Canadian household that amounts to 140 kilograms of wasted food per year – at a cost of more than $1,300 per year!
ZWILLING has set out to help reduce food waste with their unique vacuum food storage system, Fresh & Save – designed to keep food fresher for up to 5 times longer!
Whether you’re a meal prepper like me or prefer planning only one or two meals at a time, minimizing food waste, taking fewer trips to the grocery store and actually eating those leftovers are more important now than ever. Plus, keeping produce fresh for longer motivates me to eat healthier. I love a good salad, but after just a few days when the salad mix starts to go bad — you know — when it starts to get that smell and sliminess, I can’t stomach it.
The solution: A food vacuum sealer. Air carries gas compounds and bacteria, which can alter food’s quality and taste (and eventually causes the food to go bad). Vacuum sealing keeps air out, so food lasts longer. Plus, it prevents freezer burn. You have many vacuum sealers to choose from online. I’ve tested the ZWILLING Fresh & Save Vacuum Sealer, and below I share how it works, plus my takeaways. Spoiler alert: It comes with an app!
ZWILLING Fresh & Save Starter Set
You can buy the food saver bags and glass containers separately to fit your needs, but this seven-piece set is a great way to get started. It comes with a compact, rechargeable vacuum pump, a large glass container, a medium glass container, two medium reusable bags and two small reusable bags.
